"Perhaps it's because I've been a fan since I was a Peter Parker-esque teenager - did you know Spidey kicked the ass of all the X-Men single-handedly in Secret Wars? - but Web Of Shadows restored a little of my ragged faith in Spider-Man videogames. While Activision haven't quite seized control of the listless franchise, at least they've got a handle on what makes it great.
Bottom line: If you like the sound of I Am Legend crossed with Spider-Man - albeit with some unnecessary sidekicks and faux-conflicted choices - it's time for tights, camera, action!"
